Highlighting Geometric Entities in COMSOL Multiphysics® with Color

Duration: 3:55

When setting up a simulation in COMSOL Multiphysics®, you need to select geometric entities in order to apply settings to your model, such as when applying definitions, specifying materials, and adding physics boundary conditions.

As you choose from the geometry in your model, you will notice in the Graphics window that the color displayed on the selected geometric entity changes. The color options, including gray, red, blue, green, and yellow, indicate the selection status of the geometric entity for the model tree item that is currently open in the Model Builder window.

Watch this video to learn how the COMSOL® software highlights geometric entities and what each color means.
